The yacht clubs take time and sponsors, plus you need your own mooring - which in Marblehead waters is a long waiting list. We presently rent a seasonal mooring from Brewers Hawthorne Cove in Salem

Cottage Park YC in Winthrop was pretty reasonable when I was there.

Re: new P30 owner in MA

Boston Harbor Shipyard & Marina has reasonable slip rates and is as close to the Boston Harbor Islands as you are going to get outside of a club.

They let you work on your own boat and you can bring in outside contractors for work. I couldn't interest the on-site shop in doing any work on my boat though. I spent months waiting for call backs and estimates on a major repair before giving up and finding another contractor. They were also happy to charge me for things without telling me or having me agree. When they are holding your gear for ransom, they have you over a barrel. As long as you steer clear of the shop, the marina itself is fine.

How do you like Salem harbor?

Which mooring field is ideal?

I just spoke to the harbormaster and the only availability for next season is by Winter Island.

Salem has been fine, the big plus is the short drive to the boat as we live in Marblehead. I do find day sailing a little limited, would prefer to be back in Boston with all the islands... Being local does allow us be on the boat 2-3 times during the week, plus of course the weekends.

We are two years on the Marblehead west side (Salem) mooring waiting list. We rent a seasonal mooring from Brewer Hawthorne Cove, which provides a mid-harbor location. While a little expensive, the yard is a great place, with good parking, fun events, excellent launch service and a very nice staff.

As to mooring locations, the further in (south), the better as you get more protection against NE winds. That said, Salem Harbor in general has seems well protected (much more so than Marblehead), I would moor off Winter Island, just follow the usual precautions relative to dual pendants and chafing gear, there are a few good SN threads on that subject.
